YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) - The National Park Service is soliciting proposals from businesses interested in providing guided saddle and pack stock trips in Yellowstone National Park.

The Park Service plans to award up to 42 new concession contracts.

Proposals are due on March 17 next year.

The Park Service anticipates awarding the 10-year contacts in fall 2015 with an effective date of Jan. 1, 2016.

A recent environmental study found no significant impact from issuing new contracts for commercial saddle and pack stock use in Yellowstone.
